Retro Beach Cottage

 
SOLD
This looks like it's on some Caribbean Island but it's right here in my neighborhood. A little flat roofed cottage that retains its 'back in the day' flavor sitting amongst the houses along the beach. The neighborhood is all makeovers and new houses created over the footprints of old beach cottages but the word is that there'll be no such thing happening to this place. The owner likes it just the way it is.  I zoomed in on this using the diagonals of the shadows to create a more interesting design.

You've painted this old place with love and color. Building a manse over a cottage... how sad. Don't they know you can't go home again?

Love it! It reminds me of the cheery cottages on Key West. I love that you pushed the colors a little bit. It's a jewel of a painting.
